This is the 24-year-old spring breaker from Philadelphia who was drugged, raped and found dead in a Miami Beach hotel room.

Photos posted on her Facebook page show Christine Englehardt, a pizza shop manager, smiling as she stands across the street from the beach last year, and smiling at the camera in another snap.

Another photo shows Englehardt kissing a dog, with the caption reading, “My baby boy forever.”

Last week, police said the bubbly restaurant worker was found dead and semi-nude at the Albion Hotel on South Beach — where she had been drugged and raped while on spring break.

Two North Carolina men — Evoire Collier, 21, and Dorian Taylor, 24 — were arrested in the case Monday for allegedly drugging Englehardt with a “green pill,” raping her, and stealing her credit cards, according to police and reports.

Police said Collier and Taylor were identified by surveillance footage at the hotel, which allegedly caught them arriving with the victim around 1 a.m. Thursday.

Englehardt was identified as the victim by police, WBT-News reported.

Miami Beach Det. Luis Alsina said during a court hearing Monday that Taylor could be seen “holding her by the neck so she could stand.”

Collier allegedly told police they met Englehardt at a local restaurant and gave her a drug police believe to be Percocet, Alsina testified.

The men then took her credit card and left her unconscious.

Police are awaiting a coroner’s report to determine if Englehardt died as a result of the pill, the sexual assault, or another cause.

Those tests could determine if the two men, who are currently charged with burglary, battery, and sexual battery, will also face murder charges, police said.
